This Bud’s For You – Part 2; Pay Attention This Time

Flashback to Billy’s Boxing Blog circa February 2016; Terrance Crawford just manhandled Hank Lundy by dispatching him with a 5th round TKO. After previously going through the likes of Yuriorkas Gamboa and Ray Beltran it wasn’t like I was going out on a shaky limb but in my post fight blog, I predicted “Bud” would clean out the 140 pound division with ease.
Over his next fights Crawford defeated Viktor Postol, John Molina Jr. and Felix Diaz. These victories paved the way for Saturday night’s title unifier with Indongo.
With his devastating destruction of the previously unbeaten and dual belt holder Julius Indongo, Crawford, who owns two belts himself, gathered up Indogo’s straps and became the first unified title holder since 2004. That is an accomplishment that should not and cannot be taken lightly.
This last time I wrote about Crawford he wasn’t exactly a household name and although he went on to go through everyone placed in front of him after that, he remained relatively off the radar.
Allow me to make another prediction.
